Merry Christmas!

(This one is a bit over the top, no?)

My Butt Pix

Sunday, August 5th, 2007

Continuing my grand tradition of “no holes barred” and being up front…er, well, back maybe…and in yer face, I hereby bare my soul and…other intangibles and present my butt pix.
Be really sure you want to see this before clicking below!


Asagao 2007

Monday, July 30th, 2007

Yeah! Had my first morning glory bloom this morning:

Tons more to come. And the suckers just keep on growing. (Had to add extensions upwards to the framework on Saturday.) I just wish the weather were nicer.
It seems the rainy season is not yet over. (It’s overcast and the wind is brrrrrisk this morning.) But despite […]

My Missionary Position?

Monday, June 18th, 2007

In preparation for the great exodus in early August (the building refurb project I think I’ve mentioned before), some of the third-years were cleaning out the student lounge a few doors down one day last week and brought me a caricature done by a graduating student a few years back that has graced the walls […]

Tsurara (氷柱)

Monday, February 26th, 2007

Jobanni evidently went snowboarding with friends over in Aizu over the weekend. Sent me this pic this morning of an interesting ice formation (a tsurara or “ice pillar”) they passed on the way back to Ibaraki.

They were curious enough about it that they stopped to get out and look.
Reportedly they found a broken waterline, from […]

Happy 2007 - The Year of the Boar!

Monday, January 1st, 2007

When, even though I am an Ox, I still have a feeling I will come into my own….

Happy New Year!
(Or New Year’s Eve, for those of you still stuck in December 31st!)

Mini-Composition: Photo Captions

Thursday, December 28th, 2006

Every Tuesday, Gaijin Biker over on Riding Sun does a “Tuesday caption contest” (up to #70 now) in which he posts a photo and commenters try to come up with the best caption, with the winner announced on Fridays.
I pinched this idea and applied it in a task for my composition classes. In its current […]

I’m telling you, they don’t call it “BF E…Ibaraki” for nothing!
I stopped off to check my mailbox on the way back to the office after my 3rd-period class and the little lady from Sômu caught me on the way out. Seems the kakari-chô who retired back in March stopped by and left some produce from […]

Some pix…

Sunday, November 19th, 2006

I took some pictures from the car Thursday morning on the way down to Mito. Most of them didn’t turn out (at least not to show what I had expected, as expected, though none were bad except one too blurry one in a tunnel), but here are four that I liked….

This long Mito afternoon…

Wednesday, November 15th, 2006

Kind of a slow day today here at the office.
I brought the camera along for sheets and geegles, so here’s a shot from the little balcony on the third floor, facing in the direction of the main gate. (Those are the Education Department buildings there on the left. Nothing else really worth mentioning stands out […]

Eat me!

Edible beauty, courtesy of Nagasakiya:

This mum was included in the nabe pack I bought at Nagasakiya for dinner tonight. Somehow it just looked too pretty to eat.
So I didn’t.

Tagged: Three Silly Photos

Monday, October 23rd, 2006

I’m supposed to post three silly photos of myself, right?
OK, here we go. (I hope you’re satisfied, Ludmilla!)
From the mid-80s, a little Octoberendfest delectable found wandering far from both Yoshiwara and The Short North…Ranko, the Geisha Guy.

Next, continuing the “Cross-Dresser Series”…

we have what has come to be known as “Indo Musume”, after the group of […]

This is wrong, too!

Halloween’s just around the corner.
And somebody’s already ready!

Words fail me.
I LOVE it!

Fukkoku-Do Compe Entry

Wednesday, August 9th, 2006

Tramping down memory lane, sepia-colored….

This was what I did to the veranda of the third-floor apartment in the government housing where I lived, back in the Kousen days.

I says, do da name Rebo Begonia ring a bell?

Wednesday, August 9th, 2006

The disk in Jobanni’s old iBook went wonky a while back, so I convinced him to splurge a bit and get a new MacBook, one with a built-in camera and Photo Booth. This turned out to be SUCH a bad idea, since I had no idea he would turn out to be an irredeemable naruko. […]
